I came across this truck in a ditch near my house this afternoon. I stopped and checked on the driver, and he was unhurt and was waiting for a recovery truck to turn up.
It turned out he had missed his turning on the A9 and had turned up this single track road to try to find a place to turn around. He had managed to turn around, and was on his way back to the A9, (about 100 yards ahead of the truck), when a gust of wind forced his nearside wheels off the edge of the tarmac and then he toppled into the ditch.

Must have been quite a scary experience for the driver.

The stuff on the right is just mud churned up by cars having to go on the grass to get bye the truck.

When I knocked on the truck door the driver already had a hot drink and a sandwich.
